A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use cloud website hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management simpler. Whatever the plan that you choose, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you will have access to many functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host one domain address in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited.
